Anniversary Gifts by Year: How To Celebrate With Jewellery From Jenna Clifford

An anniversary – as the name suggests – is the annual celebration of an event. This event can be anything, but the word anniversary usually denotes the annual celebration of exchanged vows and your wedding day. The first 30 years of anniversaries are celebrated annually, where after they are celebrated every half-decade or so.
